W is for What I Like


I don’t collect Weird  stuff on purpose, it just seems to fall into my life. Like this ridiculous collection of refrigerator magnets. Yes, that IS a giant haggis magnet. Hagnet.


Next are my empty gold frames.  They were sitting around waiting for pictures til I decided they’d look better on  the wall than on the floor.


And no, my walls are NOT the same color as my refrigerator… not sure WHAT  the iPhone camera is doing with color.

Then there’s the world’s largest clothespin, shown with mouse for scale:


A dead bird, wearing a sombrero and some bling! (We didn’t kill it, it came to us through Mr Tater’s family, no one knows how)


A clock that looks like a plant. Next to another tiny clock, neither of which is showing the correct time!


 Inscrutable kitten, with scarf:


These  are the fortunes that were in the cookies that Mr Tater and I had with our Chinese dinner the night before our wedding.


In case you can’t read them in the photo they say:

An aura of glamour and mystery  surrounds your events of the week.


Stop searching forever. Happiness is just next to you.

Uh-huh. Awesome, right?

True story.

Of course, my long-time followers (ha) will recognize the fabulous tissue box in my work cube:


And finally, the reason I’ve resisted getting a new phone.

This wonderful sticker from Wondermark:  http://store.wondermark.com/products/hyperbolic

which fits perfectly on the back of my antique iPhone 4:


I hope you enjoyed this little peek inside what I think is fun. It’s Who I am.

        I’m not usually good with names. My youngest didn’t have a name for the first 3 days of his life! But Ithought about this long and hard, and I’m gonna go with…Leopold. You’re welcome! 😀

      Thanks – Wondermark has a ton of cool stuff like that (and no, I don’t get a commission on any of it, I’m an unsolicited testimonial ;-))

    Great stuff! You can learn a lot about people by this type of thing. I love the phone cover! Now, where can I get me a bitchin’ haggis magnet? That would be the only time my Scottish man will have Haggis under my roof!



Go ahead, say it. Don't be shy...
